Berlin brothel cuts rates for environmentally conscious clients

Those who arrive on bicycle, public transit, get a discount

In the aftermath of the economic crisis, a Berlin brothel has come up with a novel way to meet its cash-strapped clients’ needs—and do its part for the environment at the same time. The Maison d’Envie, located in Berlin’s Prenzlauer Berg, a Green party stronghold, is offering discounts to clients who get there by bicycle or public transit. According to Regina Götz, who runs the brothel, the scheme has so far been successful: about 10 per cent of customers have presented their bike helmets or transit passes to get a five-euro (CAD$7.70) break on services, which normally cost 30 euros for 15 minutes.
